“Reading the moment requires our heart as well as our eyes.” #bgdtcoaching.
Without engaging our heart, the task of reading the moment is made more difficult than it already is. Taking the pulse of the situation, though not easy, can provide us with valuable input as we make our way through the moment.
We might not have the time to undertake a full-blown analysis, complete with a survey and focus group input. Yet just stepping back from the ongoing activities and reflecting quietly gives us a panoramic view of the present situation.
For a deeper level of understanding, reading the moment inevitably begins with a desire to gain perception, and a few minutes of calm are crucial to the process. So, right now what is your heart telling you about today?
Reading the moment, what does it tell you about tomorrow? What else? With the details in place, what will you do differently from now onwards to bring about a bright future?
Reading the moment now I notice it is time to draw this post to close. As ever, if you’d like to share your input by leaving a comment below, subscribe using the box on the right to receive future posts as emails or like this post, please feel free to do so.
